In addition to their participation in two Belgian World Tour races at the weekend (GP E3 and Gent-Wevelgem), IAM Cycling will have the honor of competing in the Critérium International, having received an invitation from the organizers of the Tour de France, the ASO (Amaury Sport Organization).

The eight riders on the Swiss team will be happy to find that their strengths are well-suited to the Corsican terrain. Kjell Carlström, the directeur sportif, confirmed the team’s commitment to figure prominently in the action throughout the two day, three stage event on Saturday and Sunday.

“Critérium International is an excellent race for this time of year, offering a sort of mini-rehearsal for larger stage races later on since you have a time trial and a summit finish. I hope that the weather will be more amenable than it was at Milan-San Remo. I will count on guys like Denifl, Fumeaux, Tschopp and Wyss to be very prominent among the main actors of the race, since they will be on their favorite stomping grounds, especially Sunday for the summit finish of the col de l’Ospedale. The team’s philosophy has not changed: we want to be a prime animator in any race we start, with the goal of coming away with a victory.”
